WATCH: Politicians accused of stealing young people's future due to inaction on climate change

Politicians were accused of stealing young people’s future and leaving them to “clean up your mess” due to inaction over tackling climate change. In a powerful address to TDs and Senators - who are finalising a report on climate action - school student Sumaya Mohammed warned that they have just ten years to make a difference and said: “I hope you make that count.” It comes after a protest in recent weeks that saw school children around the world go on strike in protest at a lack of action by adults to address global warming. Ms Mohammed was among a number of students who spoke at the committee this afternoon.
